Sports bar for NFL football in DC area?

With the new football season just around the corner, I'd like some suggestions for sports bar w/ a good amount of TVs for the various games going on Sunday. Proximity to a metro station is a plus...

  1. The Alley Cat has great food and drink specials for the games and an excellent brunch menu.

    About a mile away from the metro but the DASH Bus AT1 and AT8 will take you right to it.

    They label all of the TVs with the various games and have enough to show them all. They are a favorite of Steelers fans but regulars include Redskins and even a persistent Browns fan (now THAT'S dedication).

      It really depends on what team you are planning on rooting for.

    2. Greene Turtle, various locations in MD and one in DC, near gallery place metro. Buffalo Wild Wings various locations, including one near rockville metro.
      Penn Quarter Sports tavern, across from Archives metro.

      1. Cleveland Park Bar and Grill in Cleveland Park is always a winner. Right next to the Cleveland Park Metro stop, no less. Plenty of tvs, well-above average food (for a sports bar), and reasonable prices.

          Agree On Cleveland Park. Very friendly place. I also like the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern, which is just a few steps from the Navy Memorial metro. Church Key/Birch and Barley (upstairs) has good TV viewing if you sit at the bar.

        2. Althought they are not in DC proper, Crystal City Sports pub in Crystal City is right off the metro. Summers is off the Courthouse Metro, and Mr. Days and Hard Times are close to the Clarendon metro. I have to say that the Crystal City Sports pub is one of the best in the region but gets very crowded on game day.
